Funding announced for local provincial parks

2 min read

The provincial government recently announced funding for two local provincial parks.

Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson announced in a release that the province is investing $1.8 million in the Inverhuron and MacGregor Point Provincial Parks. The funding will go toward building, maintaining and improving infrastructure within the parks to improve tourist and visitor experiences.

This funding is earmarked for four new roofed accommodations at Inverhuron Provincial Park, and six new roofed cabins at MacGregor Point Provincial Park.

“This investment in Inverhuron and MacGregor Point Provincial Parks is crucial to support expansion of these two local park facilities, given the tourism they attract,” said MPP Thompson. “These improvements will attract more people to experience the wonder of Ontario’s natural landscapes including the stunning scenery and sunsets that are enjoyed in Bruce County.”

“In 2022, Ontario Parks recorded more than 12.1 million visits and overnight camping grew by nine per cent over 2021, which goes to show the increasing demand for our beautiful provincial parks,” said David Piccini, Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. “Upgrading infrastructure is one of the ways we’re working to improve the visitor experience, so that they have a memorable and positive time while at our parks, returning with their friends and families for years to come.”
